Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a student majoring in economics and working full time doing marketing for a leadership consulting firm. I have a wife and a baby girl. I love to golf, exercise, read, and play with my family. I ran a half-marathon earlier this year, and hope to do a triathlon next year.
I am a Mormon because the Holy Ghost told me it's right. As I've followed the things I've learned in the Church I have found peace and happiness. I know that everyone can receive blessings from God if they are full of faith and follow the Spirit.
The Book of Mormon teaches me the things God wants me to do, and when I do them I feel close to God. I try to read it every day. When I miss a day, it feels empty. It is easier for me to make poor choices when I don't read, but when I do read I find great strength.
I lead the men's group in my local congregation, made up mostly of students at the university. Trying to lead by example, I read the scriptures and pray each day, as well as attend church meetings each Sunday. In addition to nurturing my own family, I try to help the men in my congregation strengthen their own families by becoming more like the Savior.
